What are some phrases, ideas, aphorisms or passages that've influenced your worldview?

Jim Goad has always been my continuing source of inspiration. Few people have the guts, gumption and grit to live the life he's experienced, and even fewer have the talent and tenacity to write about his past in such magnificent prose. I'd call him a 21st Century Henry Louis Mencken or Friedrich Nietzsche, but frankly, the comparisons would only go so far in encapsulating his scintillating style.

My favorite passage comes from The Shit Magnet, his personal memoirs he wrote while locked up. There's lots of prose, so I'll edit it down to the most poignant parts.

>Guilt is the idea that we are finite, that we are mortal, that we decay, and such notions dampen one’s life instinct...Humans typically try to cure themselves of guilt by infecting someone else. Guilt becomes something you wish on your enemies. When you can make someone feel guilty, it’s easier to control them...When a society feels guilty, it starts to decline. When it can isolate its guilt outside of its borders and punish the scapegoat, it prospers.
>When you look at heroes and villains throughout literature, the only real differences seem to be that the heroes wear brighter costumes and are better at killing. The biggest killers always declare themselves saints...all viewed their acts as purification rituals.

Lord Acton's 'Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely'. just something that sticks in my mind. Seldom do I find good quotes. my favourite is definitely the buddha's 'when you like a flower, you pluck it. when you love a flower, you nurture it.' something I hadn't realised before I first read it, but it is obvious now. the last 2 pictures related has shaped my thoughts from time to time.

Actually, the idea "I myself am more capable of finding out the truth than anyone else, including organizations and systems who are working on it since centuries" is symptom of a juvenile mind.

As long as you aren't an overachieving prodigy who already has secured his entire life, you apparently face obstacles and difficulties that will turn out to not be unique to your life.

you misinterpret me a bit. i never wanted to say "i am more capable than anyone else" - just that i am trying to find the small drops of truths within this sea of propaganda. i know i do make mistakes; i'm human after all.

about the religious stuff: it's fact, that e.g. christianity only got so big because they slaughter everyone not joining them.

a lot of people within these abrahamic cults are actually genuinely trying to help. but it doesn't change the history.
and i don't like this argument of "b,but those were the people of the past. now it is totally different."
you do not here anyone say "But those were the Nazis of the past. The current Nazis are totally different." → it's still the same core philosophy.

Soldered molex to the points of voltage measurings. Red for GPU voltage and yellow for memory voltage. Now I don't have to hold multi-meter's sticks with my shaky hands.
Found more or less decent cooler, drilled a couple mounting holes in it and soon it was installed on my little 8600 gt.
And now comes the best part. Overclocking! I went for GPU overclock first and to my bad surprise software tool known as MSI afterburner was limiting maximal clock with just 702 MHz. I pushed voltage to 1.5 volts on GPU and went for 702 MHz. Videocard was stable and after benchmarks in Portal 2 I tried to overclock memory. And here was the problem. No matter what I tried card wasn't stable with 430+ clocks. I even put small radiators on the memory chips thinking it was a temperature problem. Pushed memory voltage to 2.1 V. Nothing. 2.15v. Nothing. 2.2, 2.25, 2.27. Same nothing. So I gave up and blamed it on bad memory. But situation was even worse. Videocard couldn't pass a Portal 2 benchmark with 430 MHz so I had to lower it to 424 MHz. That's a real shame I have to say. Memory is a huge bottleneck in this card. 8600 gt usually comes with gddr3 memory and this one got ddr2 so overclock could really improve performance.
Anyway, GPU clock limit wasn't reached so I searched for similar programs as MSI afterburner and found its successor RivaTuner. Clock limit of this tool was higher and after voltage push to 1.57, it was achieved as well. 810 MHz. After such a huge milestone I was ready to rise clock limit even further but another problem went in my way. Temperature. It was close to 90 degrees of Celsius which means cooler isn't sufficient for overclock any longer.
So here comes end of my overclock story. Later I might use a bigger cooler but it needs long thinking about how I will attach it to the videocard. For now I stopped at 810 MHz for GPU and 424 MHz for memory. Performance boost is ~30% more fps in Portal 2.

BananaPi is only good when you go for the bigger models like the router board. (for example, to built a small series of 10-20 custom routers for a big-assed asterisk/VPN setup, etc...)

Thank you Poland.

It's that I thought about this artist because he talks a lot about aesthetics.

IIRC the guy was from the Garo collective.

Recently I knew this material, which is impressive. I thought Tatsumi might be the best from that collective but oh no, no. This one is incredible.

I would suggest running instead of going to the gym, no time limits, few excuses, you can always do 100 pushups, squats, sit-ups.
One advice I had previously when I was unhappy/depressed after neeting for a few years, I blamed myself but when I had a real job, I could at least blame all my troubles on my job and I think that is what 70% of ppl do, work sucks, but that is life, if was a great relief to join reality and blame something else and not yourself.
Who knows what will come tomorrow, but will you cry if it rains, i doubt it, take life as it is, a bunch of organisms competing for resources.

Alcohol makes you lucid and allows you to think, it also digs a hole, you keep digging a hole you feel warm and safe after a number of years you might not understand the world but you know you will feel warm and safe in your hole.
So any stress, anxiety or boredom brings you back.
However life is full of anxiety, stress and boredom.

I think I will do both.
Jogging on off days.

The reason I like going to the gym is because it's fun. Lifting heavy objects and seeing how heavy an object you can lift is like a game. It's engaging on a level that bodyweight exercises are not.

Also, swimming, too, sounds interesting. It sounds very cozy to spend whole day splashing in water, and reading books while you're tired, then going back into the water again. Just some place to relax, instead of sitting at the computer all day.

i have it the other way round. i think it is more engaging if you work with your own body as weight. gives me a better feeling of "body control", the illusion, that i know my body's limits and strength.
climbing, parkour, running and swimming; those are activities where you only move your body, no other weights.

don't want to convince you of my interpretation/motivation. just felt like sharing

As, so it is actual fashion after Ran and Steampy and also liberal views of channel on authors.
USSR had kinda same, when to cartoons was allowed everyone basicly. If movies and other media often was censured, nobody cared for most time about catoons, since it "for kids", and we have hell lot of ugly, experimental, art-house, some deep philosophy and other total trash, that hit it's maximum at the end of soviet union where basicly was allowed everything.

It's terrible that making something "for kids" would be used as an excuse to do do a lousy job. Children need to be exposed to high quality cartoons when they're really young so they develop good taste.
>liberal views of channel on authors
I think you said it better than me. When artists are free to create, it can go really good or really bad. I do think the ugly style can work in certain situations, like Rugrats, for instance. It was about babies, and babies kind of see the world distorted, so the art had a purpose. When it was copied in later cartoons like Rocket Power it was just the Klasky-Csupo studio style, but didn't really add anything to the show and it was no longer even creative.

Well, in therms of actual soviet country, it was only place for many and many artists, where their art won't be destoyed by bulldozers if you know what I mean X--DDD

Sometimes it did realy well thought, like this clips that was inside "Trreashure island" cartoons was pretty fun and in style you neet see often in soviet screens.

Famous post-ussr captian pronin with all his mems was another clear product of it's time that was fun to watch. All this cartoon with meraphorical memes is actually how very sharp changes of country and culture feels like.
